Ah, Slyme. Ectoplasmic! One of the most unusual colors in the boro palette, Slyme can range from a transparent to translucent to a milky semi-opaque, depending on how you work it. Work cooler to keep Slyme more opaque, with a soft reducing flame. This also prevents reboil and scumming. Goes transparent under higher heat, but can develop a ghostly milky green haze. Slyme is known to have a slightly higher COE, but works in nearly any application.
Especially at the start, you will want to use a reducing flame with Slyme for best results! You can switch to a bushy neutral flame once it is up to temp. If you are getting scum or boil, check your oxy regulator and consider lowering the pressure at the tank. Slyme tends to prefer a lower ratio of oxy to propane than any other color you will use.
Size: Diameter 5-7mm, length 20", weight per rod .07 lb, approximately 12-15 rods per pound. There is a quarter pound minimum per color. All TAG rods are first quality.
ATTENTION: Due to the weight and length of the rods you may receive .30 pound vs .25 pound (as an example) when ordering. This will cause the cost to rise and the amount you expect to pay for your glass may change.
If this is a problem, please let us know and we will “underweigh” your glass. This means instead of .25 pound you may receive .20 to .22 pound. Please be aware that it is almost impossible to pull exactly .25 pound. We will always try our best to get as close as possible to the weight that is ordered, but due to the factors stated, these weights may substantially increase the total cost of your order.
